Looking to buy cactus online in Australia? Look no further! We have the perfect addition to your collection – the Cleistocactus Ritteri x, a remarkable shrubby columnar cactus that’s sure to captivate gardeners of all kinds.

This unique cactus branches basally, forming a striking silhouette adorned with short, stiff spines along its stems. Its distinctive appearance makes it a sought-after choice among cactus enthusiasts.

When caring for your Cleistocactus Ritteri x, remember to water it regularly during the summer months, ensuring that the substratum is allowed to completely dry before the next irrigation. In winter, a more hands-off approach is needed as this cactus prefers drier conditions.

For optimal growth, provide this beauty with full sun exposure, but during the scorching summer months, consider protecting it from the harsh sun to prevent sunburn.

To keep your Cleistocactus Ritteri x healthy and thriving, we recommend repotting it every year. This practice not only supports its well-being but also encourages vigorous growth, ensuring that your cactus flourishes year after year.

Sowing Instructions

Required for germination, light, heat, and humidity. The succulent mix should have good drainage with no fertilizer in it. The temperature for germination is about 15 degrees to 35 degrees. Cacti like to have a little bit of light for germination, but no direct sunlight. In the first 4-8 weeks of gemination place in shaded with indirect sunlight. Very important not to allow them to dry out and to keep them moist. Patience and experience as they are fragile plants. Gradually allow them to have more sunlight as they grow larger.
